I'm in a New York state of (decolonizing) mind

I'm in New York today and tomorrow for the UN's Fourth Committee. They're talking about decolonization issues including Western Sahara, so it'll be fun. If you're going to be there, send me an email (sommerwf - at- gmail) and we'll hang out.

Pictures and recap soon.


  1. Will,

    Are you speaking or just attending? Either way, tell Janet Lenz I said hi and take good notes!

    Hi Will,
    I just took a look at the pics of 'the martyrs of the riots' posted by Western Sahara Echo and you know what they are just pathetic! I wonder if u did take a look at them. Hope you are condoning such cheap propaganda crap!

  4. Justin, I was going to speak but I bumbled the registration. Janet Lenz gave a great speech (as did a bunch of other people), but I had to leave and didn't get a chance to meet her.

    Hey, El Tiburon. What's your evidence that the pictures of Sahrawis beaten up isn't true? Obviously, I wouldn't base criticisms of the Moroccan government on three pictures, but it's not out of the ordinary.
